You know, in India we were given glucose water to drink during cross country races in schools. It’s supposed to be an instant energizer. It’s sold everywhere here! Just google Glucon-D
And you lived to tell about it? Thanks for the information. I love that Heinz makes a glucose beverage! How mainstream is that? Terri
You’re a honey to try these cookies.. and you should.. soon!! And you should use the glucose! How often have you baked with glucose in your life? I rest my case. I’m not sure how often I’ll be using it again and could have shared some with you.. since I see you live in my hometown, lol!! I think it’s a peculiar ingredient, but fun.. and life’s about fun once in a while?! I really hope you try these, they were so fun and pretty!! xo Smidge
ps.. you’re blog rules.. you even got Community to comment on it!! Wow, how did you do that!!??
Hope it was okay to link to your blog. I’m not totally up on that protocol but I didn’t think you would mind. I’ll let you know when I try the cookies. I agree that one container will probably last a lifetime. (I tagged Community so I’m sure that’s how they found me.) Thanks for your comment. I thoroughly enjoy your blog! Terri
I apologize for what happened and I am with you and appreciate your reaction to what happened. I am the General Manager at Community and I want you to know that our intention (read official policy) would be to provide information and service, not judgement. I eat ice cream and french fries as often as organic tomatoes and basil. As a store we want to help everyone in Calgary move toward improved health. If that means trying organics for the first time or committing to a holistic vegan life we want to help answer questions and encourage both. I appreciate the complaint and we will use it to train to improve our consumer approach – Bruce Martin
Thank you for commenting. I shop at Community quite regularly and appreciate the variety and quality of products that you carry. I will be back, just not looking for anything that might be deemed “unhealthy”. I’ve learned my lesson. Terri
Glucose – Smoocose -eat up Terri and enjoy the cookies….
Thanks, Catherine. Not sure when I’ll be baking these, but I’ll give you a full report! Terri
I think the office and the clerk were taking their job way too seriously. I don’t blame you for feeling the way you do.
Karen, missed your comment as I was away from my computer for a few days, but thank you. I was pleased that the store manager responded in a timely matter, especially considering that I didn’t contact them directly! I didn’t think it was that big a deal, but we bloggers love to speak our minds!
Husb and I had a similar experience a couple of years ago when we went to pharmacies trying to buy citric acid for making Elderflower Cordial. We were made to feel like criminals because citric acid is used by heroin addicts as part of their injecting process. One pharmacy disapprovingly agreed to sell us some but only a tiny amount. We eventually found some in our local Asian foodstore where they sold HUGE bags of it, without disapproval and it’s enough to last us a few years. Honestly – food fascists!!!!!
Thank you for that! I was wondering if it was just me!
Just too many Jobsworths around unfortunately
